The name “Victoriano” comes from Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoy, first King of Italy. Ever since, in 1921, it held the remains of the Unknown Soldier, the monument took on a new symbolic value, and what was initially thought of as a dynastic monument, finally became the symbol of a united Italy and celebration of his freedom.
The basic idea of Sacconi, was this: represent allegorically, but also geographically, all of Italy, by means of symbolic representations.
The monument is owned by the Ministry of Culture and is run (since december 2014) from the Museum Pole of the Lazio region.
Among the different exhibition spaces of the Vittoriano, the exhibition will take place at the Ala Brasini.
